Kellyanne Conway Surprises MSM With Her Rational Response To The Allegations Against Rob Porter

I think the left was hoping for a very different outcome from this interview.

Kellyanne Conway appeared on CNN’s “State of the Union” Sunday and addressed the allegations against disgraced and (now former) White House staff secretary Rob Porter.

“In this case, you have contemporaneous police reports, you have women speaking to the FBI under threat of perjury … you have photographs, and when you look at all of that pulled together, Rob Porter did the right thing by resigning,” Conway said.

She took it a step further and said she has “no reason not to believe the women.”

“…but we can go ahead with no reason to believe that ever happened…it does shock the conscience,” she added. “You try to process it, and you try to compare it against the person you’ve worked with.”

People say her response to this fiasco differs greatly from President Trump’s. On Saturday, President Trump tweeted about this…kinda. I’m not sure if he had Rob Porter in mind or if he was simply making a general statement.

Conway said Trump’s tweet was more of a “generic” statement, and that’s what I initially assumed.

George Stephanopoulos also asked Conway about Trump’s response.

“There does seem to be a pattern here. When a friend or an ally — a man — of the president’s gets in trouble with these allegations of, of abuse or sexual harassment, the president’s sympathies immediately go to the man, whether it’s Bill O’Reilly or Roger Ailes or Roy Moore or Rob Porter. Why is that, and do you understand the problem that creates for the president?” he asked.

“This is a man who show great compassion and understanding for, for women on many different issues,” Conway said. “I frankly wouldn’t work there if that were not the case. I could be dozens of other places for lots of money.”

I believe that. Why on EARTH would a competent and capable woman like Conway work for a misogynist?

She wouldn’t. No conservative woman would.

“I think he’s doing a great job for America’s women. We have to look at the full picture … We are a safer, more prosperous nation — that includes all of us, including the nation’s women — because of Donald Trump’s leadership,” she added.

Conway also responded to Sen. Gillibrand’s ridiculous rant…

…and it is glorious.

“I don’t need a lecture from Kirsten Gillibrand or anybody else who protected and defended and harbored a sitting president who had sexual relations in the Oval Office and was impeached for lying,” Conway said. “I don’t need a lecture from her or anybody else.”
